AbstractObjective: To evaluate whether a peer-to-peer (P2P) learning technology integrated instruction (intervention) workshop, compared to a standard in person instruction (control) workshop improves coaches’ self-efficacy and ability to identify neuromuscular training warm-up exercise errors. Methods: Calgary Minor Soccer Association clubs (n= 6) agreed to participate in a randomized controlled trial. In each club, one of each type of workshop were randomly allocated to the scheduled dates. Coaches (n=85) randomly attended a control or intervention workshop. At the end of the workshop, the soccer NMT warm-up exercise test, a video-based test where coaches identify common NMT exercise errors, was completed. At the beginning and end of the workshop, the soccer NMT warm-up self-efficacy scale was completed to assess coaches’ self-efficacy in their ability to identify NMT exercises errors on a 7-point Likert scale. Results: Eighty-five youth soccer coaches attended the control (n=41) or the intervention workshop (n= 44). Mean NMT warm-up exercise test scores were 72% (95% CI: 68.38 - 76.44) for the control and 71% (95% CI: 67.50 - 79.38) for the intervention workshop. Mean change in NMT warm-up self-efficacy scores were 0.98 (95% CI: 0.56 – 1.40) for the control and 1.77 (95% CI: 1.41 – 2.14) for the intervention workshop. Multivariable linear regression analyses indicated that workshop delivery method was not associated with the exercise test score (beta= -3.45, 95%CI: -10.80 - 3.91, R2=0.13) but was associated with a greater difference in change of self-efficacy scores for the intervention workshop (beta= 0.97, 95%CI: 0.26 – 1.89, R2=0.13). Conclusions: A P2P learning technology integrated instructional workshop did not alter coaches tested ability to identify exercise mistakes but did increase coaches’ self-efficacy in identifying exercise mistakes compared to a standard in person workshop.
